The MAGNUM 140 model was acquired in 2005 by Ferreira Guedes, when a division of Terex was still being manufactured and, in 2013, it was acquired by the FAYAT Group.

After a little over 15 years, the company opted to carry out an evaluation of the equipment and, after a technical review process, the retrofit was the final decision for a new start in asphalt production.

Among the updates made were the inclusion of the NR12 system KIT, replacement of the exhaust fan, renewal of the automation, and new design, consolidating a new path for asphalt production.
